    I gotta agree with Mr. Turley, IMHO.

    I know that polygamy as an institution is criticized as being a haven for misogynists and pedophiles.
    But philosophically, consenting adults should be able to enter into multiple marriage.

    As long as it works both ways; some polygamist communities believe only the man should be allowed multiple spouses while the women should remain faithful.

    That way a lot of men can be shitty husbands to multiple wives.

    I think they have a good point. As poor as it turns out in practice, it seems like it should be legal in theory.
  6. As long as the people are of consenting age and are doing it under their own will, I don't care, but I'm not a member of the religious right, so I have no morals.

    I don't think you can really cast polygamy as a moral majority, religious right issue.

    Hey, if the gay contingent has their way, give the Polygamists room to roam too.

    Then, why is 18 an age of consent? Make it 17. You know, maybe there's rights there we've been overlooking. You could even shove it in from of the conservative evangelical wing that Mother Mary was a minor when she gave birth to Christ. Hell, let's make it 14 for mature people. That way, teachers can be legally in love with students. I mean, rights, right?
